Account of Euphoria

*Before you read this, I would like to apologize in advance. Blogger must be cropping the pictures to make them fit in the space provided for posts, so you can't actually see them in full view. And it seems that html stuff does not work on the compose tab, so damnit. If you want to see the pictures you can visit my Photobucket, convieniently linked to the tittle. T-T

I'd have to say that there's enough proof on this site that I. Am. An. Initial. D. Fan. Period, period, and period.

Yesterday I went to the mall to go off and search for the items for our Goldberg project. So after buying a pulley and some hooks, we went to the toy store (Toy Kingdom, for your information) and went looking for some motorized toy car, you know, those with a remote or something the like. Anyway, after picking one from the display outside, I went inside and looked for a plastic shovel, the kind kids use to build sandcastles, or lumps, in the beach. Anyway, we went down the path and lo and behold... I saw a display of cars and... THERE WERE INITIAL D CARS THERE!!!

So, as expected, I went something like, "OMG..." And went over to the display and almost pressed myself against the glass staring at the scale car models. The big problem is that it's WAY expensive, kinda logically expected. Anyway, I took some pictures of the cars, including their price tags.

An AE86, Takumi's car. It even has the advertisement for their tofu shop. ><

Now, an FD, an RX-7, Keisuke's car. Oh, man, it looks great on screen, you can even see the characters at the back. The color of the car is right on camera, but in real life it's a bit too... orange. But not orange, thankfully. What is Natsuki doing there?! She isn't a racer!

Here's Ryousuke's car, the FC. You can probably deduce that it's related to the FD, yep it is. It's the older version of the FD, you do know the alphabet after all. ;D Sorry if the quality of the photo isn't good. It seems like I have a hard time taking pictures of shiny white or black things, like this car, and my other cars...

This is the R32, GT-R! Dum, dum, dum-dum!!! It looks really menacing in the anime, First Stage though. In the Second Stage it does nothing except park and hit the wall. Tsk, tsk, Nakazato, where's your supposed skill gone? Anyway, this car doesn't interest me much, although I've seen some people from DA saying that the GT-R is "hot". Bah, they can go their own way, I want an RX-7! (Well, RX-8 actually, but close enough.)

Here are the car I actually have already: My tiny car collection...

These are just some random stuff I got, and the light thingy with an 86 is something that can be attached to a cellphone. The small silver car looks like a Cappuccino, or an S2000... And the toy, you may recognize it from the Pixar animation, Cars. That Porche model makes me think of the Nissan 350Z, it's also a Porche car, so I think this is that Nissan 350Z car...

This is a Nissan 350Z. Does it look like the Porche from above? Yep. And Tatsuya Shima from Wangan Midnight drives this car, it even has the right color! >< (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wangan_Midnight)

This, is my RX-8. Man, I dream of saying that one day and meaning it, like I actually have the actual car and not simply a model of it. Sigh... Stares reverently at picture...

This is just a picture of it all.

This is my newest addition to the collection. It's an Impreza, it's a scale model of what Tommi Makinen drove during the 2002 Monte Carlo WRC rally... To tell you the truth, apart from it being a sedan and not a coupe, it looks a lot like Bunta's Impreza... Not stickers of course. Maybe that's why they had Bunta's car color blue and not gray as it is in the manga.

And since this post is just jam-packed with car pictues, I may as well just put the pictures of our real car... Well, my mom's anyway. Why? It's her money and her car.

Scary? I took a picture of it just as my annoying mother pressed the button to open the doors. As you can see they don't have plates, so I don't have any second thoughts of posting on the net. You can see her in the picture though...

And to finish this photo post off...

Eventful week

Yup, looking at the title, this week, or at least the end of it, has been quite eventful. But let's make it systematically, ne?


Nothing much, but the regular P.E. Surprisingly, I think I got a tad better at volleyball this day. I was able to hit the ball in a straight line. Dam, dam, dam-dam! And as always, I felt tired afterwards, and ended feeling sleepy during Chemistry.


I got stuck at school because someone didn't tell me that there wasn't any debate this day. So, lucky, my mom didn't take her color-coded car to office since she had to some banking around Ayala Avenue. I don't want to try to do that again, it was totally tiring. I think that I blogged about that before. Hehe... Anyway, she took a taxi and picked me up from school.


Nope, nothing happened today. I just died and came back to life. Nope. Joke of course. Only Jesus has come back from death.


To make up for my totally uneventful Wednesday, my Thursday was totally different from my regular days.

One, because of Milenyo Teachers' Day was cancelled (and blah, blah, blah, no need for more explanations) so we held our celebration today, and so... It honestly sucked, as it always did. The performances were mainly from the elementary kids, so since kids have extraordinarily thick skins, they aren't shy. (duh, get to the point...) They performed the lamest things, so what if I'm being supremely mean. Damn, Breaking Free from sub-strandard performers is a serious pain to the ears. Breaking Free is so annoying, hearing it over, and over, and over again until it makes your ears bleed. Gah!

Second, after the celebration with a recycled poster (from Students' Night, just with an extra layer) we had our yearly hopia games. Haha, hopia games, that honestly sounds stupid. Anyway, it's the dice in the bowl game. The only thing I really hate about this game that took up our time till lunch (yay!) is that I NEVER EVER win anything more than a few littly pieces of hopia. This time I just got one tiny little hopia. Damnit! So, I just ended up mooching some hopia from some of my neighbours. ;)

And no debate meet again.


Nothing really special during actual school work except that I got a 25 out of 26 in dum, dum, dum-dum (!) Algebra! Whoa, I never get high scores in Math, I'm ADVERSE to math and math related subjects... And once again, whoa...

This is really cool. Since our numbers (of those in the debate society) have shrunk to this tiny number, we ended up rounding up 3 (!) members for the meeting. I mean, that's not even enough to hold a debate, no matter how cut and diced it gets. So inspite of the number, we had a ton of fun. I, myself, kept laughing during this time (I swear, I had not gone insane) . We had public speaking!
It was really fun, much more fun that debate, quite honestly. I swear, haha. Now, I'm multi-purpose as well. Maybe Joyce and I would be entered into public speaking contests as well, she did say that she didn't want to do it alone. Hey, we could drag Daichi into our mayhem as well. Ms. President was actually really funny as well.
This is the real crecendo of things, today our brand-new CRV arrived! It's "abalaster-silver" and it smells nice. I've always liked the smell of new cars... I drove really smoothly, and I'm trying to get used to the high view from it. Actually, as of now, I've only got 2 rides in it... I could go on and on on this, but won't, I (for once) want to go to sleep.
So ja!
